AL East (in order of finish):

AL Central (in order of finish):
DET - Division Champ; MIN (this time cannot force a game 163); CWS; CLE & KC
AL West (in order of finish):
LAA - Division Champ; TEX; OAK; & SEA
AL MVP: Miguel Cabrea
AL Cy-Young: Justin Verlander
AL ROY: JP Arencibia
DET over NYY and BOS over LAA
DET over BOS and on to the WS
NL East (in order of finish):
ATL - Division Champ; PHI - Wildcard; NYM; FL & WASH
NL Central (in order of finish):
MIL - Division Champ; CIN; STL; CHC; PITT & HOU
NL West (in order of finish):
SF - Division Champ; COL; LAD; AZ & SD
NL MVP: Ryan Braun
NL Cy-Young: Cliff Lee
NL ROY: Freddie Freeman
MIL over ATL and PHI over SF
PHI over MIL and on to the WS
PHI over DET in six for the WS Championship (2 out of three years isn't bad right Philly fans). BOL to all!
AL East - Looking good, got the quadfecta going on there
AL Central - I was certain about DET winning the Central but the rest I screwed up
AL West - Just need LAA to pull off the unbelievable at this point to get the quadfecta here too, if not close but no cigar
Awards - Got the AL Cy-Young at least but not the other two (more than likely)
NL East - ATL and PHI need to be switched in the standings... same deal as TEX and LAA. Close but no cigar!
NL Central - MIL got the division pretty much wrapped up the rest are kind of a jumbled mess for me.
NL West - the streaking D-Backs I did NOT see coming, but for the injury to Posey I might have been right about this too but such is life and baseball.
NL Awards - I like Braun's chances still but not sure Lee did enough to pass Halladay on his own team let alone NL Cy-Young. God was I bad at predicting rookie success this year!
I am still going with PHI over DET in the WS. BOL!
